On the Fast Track

May 13, 1997

They keep our trains safe. And, yes, even sublime. They are the 383 men and women who patrol the MTA's rails. They do their best to keep the trains safe--above ground and below. They also have authority that reaches beyond the transit system. Come July, the officers of the Metropolitan Transit Authority will merge with those from the L.A. County Sheriff's and Los Angeles Police departments.

MTA officials are hoping that the remaining days of "Try Transit Week"--which ends Friday and is sponsored by the American Public Transit Assn.--will get people to try the experience and meet the folks who try to make your ride fun.
